Villa Similan at Layan Bay in Phuket overlooks the sparkling Andaman Sea. Nestled into the surrounding greenery, this exclusive eight-bedroom residence sits at the highest point permitted for residential construction in the area, and was designed by the late Indonesian design guru, Jaya Ibrahim. Enjoy views of the jungle and sea from the expansive terrace, or from the 72-ft cliffside infinity pool. Inside, you’ll discover indigenous sculptures from Papua New Guinea and South America throughout, as well as a painting by Thailand’s most famous artist, Thawan Duchanee. The villa also has a ”man cave,” featuring rare wine and champagne from around the world, and the signed “golden gun” from the 1974 James Bond film, The Man with the Golden Gun.
